Giraffe Cocktails Espresso Martini

The classic Espresso Martini recipe, as devised by Bradsell, consists of just four essential ingredients:

  1. Vodka (a staple of the 80s era)
  2. Coffee liqueur
  3. A shot of espresso (we use cold brew)
  4. Sugar

Though simple in composition, these ingredients combine to create a potent and harmonious blend of robust flavors, perfect for enjoying as an aperitif or a revitalizing after-dinner treat, reminiscent of the experience one would find at a bustling bar.

Espresso Martini: the history

The Espresso Martini, an iconic cocktail beloved by many, traces its origins back to the 1980s, courtesy of English bartender Dick Bradsell. Legend has it that Bradsell concocted this delightful libation for a renowned model in need of a pick-me-up during her demanding schedule.

Initially dubbed the 'Vodka Espresso' by Bradsell himself, the cocktail underwent a few name changes before settling on its current moniker. Bradsell briefly renamed it 'The Pharmaceutical Stimulant,' but for many, this proved to be too cumbersome. Thus, 'the Espresso Martini' was born—a name that has since become synonymous with sophistication and indulgence.
